Overview


Watch out, Junie, there's a new kid on the block! It's Freddy Thresher, a first grader who knows it's a jungle out there. A new chapter book series written by an elementary teacher who's seen it all!

Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. He never has anything cool to bring for show-and-tell. This week, his best friend, Robbie, has brought the most amazing artifact to share: a real alligator head. How will Freddy come up with anything as cool as that? Good news! Later that day, he finds something very unusual and exciting. If only he can get it to school without his mom, "The Neat Freak," finding out, Freddy will be the King of Show-and-Tell!

Envious because Robbie always brings the most exciting things to school for show-and-tell, Freddy rescues a baby bird that has fallen from its nest and has to find a way to get it to school without his mother or teacher noticing.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Freddy is the appealing child at the center of the "Ready, Freddy" series and in this chapter book, he is determined to bring something cool to share for show-and-tell. An after-school visit to Freddy's tree house results in the discovery of a baby bird with a broken wing. Freddy cares for the bird and brings it to class and becomes the King of Show-and-Tell. Within this simple storyline are many reasons for the success of the book. Credible, first-grade classmates surround Freddy, such as fussy Chloe, bully Max and sidekick Robbie. The dialogue is plentiful and carries the story smoothly. The story's tension comes from Freddy keeping the bird hidden from his mother all weekend. The black and white line drawings all contain a hidden word for readers to find. "Fun Pages" follow the story and provide information and activities appropriate to young readers. Bring Freddy to primary grade students and he will promote interest in reading. 2004, The Blue Sky Press/Scholastic Inc, Ages 6 to 9.

    Kids love the unexpected outcome

    This book speaks kid¿s language without being ungrammatical. I read it to a 2nd grade class where I volunteer and they couldn¿t wait for the next session and for further Freddy Thresher adventures. They also love finding the word ¿fin¿ hidden every illustration.

    Great book for kids

    I'm an elementary school teacher and I've used the Freddy books for small book clubs. Freddy is a likable character. In each book there is a problem he's confronted with, and the students can usually relate to it in some way. It's easy to engage the students in conversations about character traits, making predictions, and evaluating character behavior. An added treat is that each illustration has the word "fin" hidden in it, and the kids love trying to find it.
